In a study on Multiple Measures Placement, researchers from the Center for the Analysis of Post-Secondary Readiness show that multiple measurement placement in Community Colleges works better than reliance on one single placement determinator. The study looked at 13 000 students at seven New York community colleges. It found that in Math, multiple measurement placement led to a 7% increase in admission – and a 3% increase in study completion of that group. In English, the increase in admission was as much as a 35% and the increase in completion was 13% higher than with single measurement admission.
